You'll probably want to start with a thick, shoulder length base wig (as pictured) and sew in long wefts to create her sidebang(s).
I am making a Villetta Nu wig and I have no idea what type of wig style to use for her! Sine her hair is long, I have to make a lone bang on the side. If you look up her picture you will see what I am talking about. I have styled and dyed my own wigs and have add weaves and braids to my own hair, so I know partially what i am doing. I was going to go with a white wig and dye it silver, but i don't know the style to use! Please Help!
Yes, but the Willow has some short hair in the back that you may need to replace with extra wefts. (From what I hear, the Clover-L has longer hair in the back, but I'd check the forums if you want to be sure.)
Would Willow work as a base?
I'm trying to make Rikku from FFX.
Brainlessly easy, just do a forum search for "cutting bangs" tutorials ^.^
Hey, I've read through your tutorial and it seems really great. :P
But I've got a small question, about the wig choice. I'll need the final product to have bangs (Yin, from Darker Than Black), but I've noticed that none of your recommended wigs start with bangs. I'm just a beginner, so I'm just wondering; how hard would it be to separate bangs, from a 'no-bang' wig? Or should I use a wig that already has bangs? If so, do you know any wigs that are particularly suitable?
Thanks in advance.
The wigs I recommend are listed in the caption ^.^ (Angela 750 and Ashley 850 are both available at the cosworx store.)
Kukkii, I have a problem. I'm trying to make a high ponytail ala Lara Croft from Tomb Raider: Legend, but all of the wigs I come across, when pulled up to the ponytail area, show the entire upper back of the neck... and thus look weird. Would you recommend a certain type of wig to make it look natural? Basically something like this : http://www.cosplaymagic.com/demaycrykyco.html
Or could I in fact use this wig and change it's color, somehow? They've informed me it doesn't come in brown :-\
Okay, thanks (I'm such a newbie at styling wigs, you're tutorial is really helpfull )
You don't sew any wefts to the skin top. The skin top is on the front / top of the wig (where the part is), it doesn't extend to the back. (You can actually see that in the photo. Or just take a look at one of your wigs, turn it inside out and you'll see for yourself^^)
Does it make it difficult in the attaching wefts section (step 5) of making a ponytail?
Okay, I was looking--and I saw two of the Clovers, but one is a Clover B--what's the main difference?
AFAIK, the Clover has a small skin top, and possibly some short hair in the back which you'd have to replace (if it's anything like the Willow.) Other than that, it should work just fine. Personally, I prefer versatile base wigs that I can cut the bangs into myself.
I have a question on the wigs; I would like to use Cosworx for my wigs--I trust them more than eBay--but I'm having a hard time finding one with the bangs I need with the wigs you suggested.
Would 'Clover' work?
